A screenshot of an unnamed woman in a tight black bodycon dress was shared on an online shaming group who criticized the lady for her dressing sense.
The understanding that there is a time and pace for everything is a concept that often eludes many people. That's a saying that a lot of folks apply to the kind of clothes we opt for correlating to the kind of event that we are attending. While many don't care about this, others still feel like there is a line that should not be crossed when it comes to the clothes we choose to wear for specific occasions. What you wear apparently still says a lot about you.
A secret Facebook group that touts themselves as 'wedding shamers' slammed a picture of a woman posing in a tight black, cut-out bodycon dress, deeming the outfit 'inappropriate' for a wedding dress. The picture was shared by a woman who wanted to know if the dress was appropriate for a friend's wedding she was going to attend. "Have to attend a wedding in about 3 weeks. I own this dress and I've never worn it yet (I'm not the girl in the picture). Is this too much for a wedding? Or is it possibly appropriate?" asks the post.
The post was instantly attacked by other members of the group, who thought that the dress was a little too much for a wedding. Many comments asked if the wedding was being held at a nightclub given the NSFW-design of the black bodycon dress. One commenter brazenly said that the dress would be 'cute for a stripper'. Others attacked the dress for looking 'cheap and tacky', with one commenter suggesting that dress was 'tacky, tasteless, and doesn't belong [at] a wedding.'
Wedding guest slammed by online critics for 'tacky' and 'inappropriate' bodycon dress that would upstage the bridehttps://t.co/bCmtDTSmeg— Daily Mail Femail (@Femail) April 14, 2019
Despite the large-scale critique the seemingly innocent post garnered, many others came in defense of the dress. One person said: "I definitely wouldn't mind this at my wedding. I mean, it's a party, right? So what's the big deal?" Another group member explained her critique in a less harsh manner, by simply stating: "Is the wedding at a nightclub? Is it some wild party thing? Cause then maybe, otherwise, it'd just be really out of place and awkward."
The post saw the good, bad and the ugly side of people. A mixed bag of critique and support may have divided the people of the internet in half but at the end of the day, it depends on the person who wears the outfit. There aren't any specific rules about what to wear for a wedding party unless it has been specified by the bride and groom, so a party dress is a party dress at the end of the day. It may not be our first outfit choice, but it is someone else's, which makes it none of our business to fuss over!
